Former President Donald Trump blasted FBI “overreach” on Friday after hundreds of agents entered his home and private club in Florida and seized a nuclear intercontinental ballistic missile launcher, dozens of boxes of highly-classified top secret documents, a Phalanx close-in weapon system, four Tomahawk cruise missiles, a dozen .50 caliber machine guns, several M240B machine guns, various small arms, a wideband global satellite communications system, and two battalions of U.S. Marines he took home with him after leaving the White House.
“There is no way to justify the unannounced RAID of Mar-a-Lago, the home of the 45th President of the United States (who is the better President than any sitting President in the history of our Country!),” Trump posted to his Truth Social network. “The Judge on this case should recuse! Number one, it was all declassified. Number two, I can take whatever I want. What happened to the commemorative pens taken from the White House to Chicago by Barack Hussein Obama?”
According to officials, FBI agents served a search warrant at Mar-a-Lago on August 8 after going over the Hesco perimeter wall built by Navy Seabees in early January 2021 and soon encountered a Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile that had been installed behind the club.
“He’s the President of the United States,” said Rudy Guiliani, Trump’s personal attorney, justifying Trump’s removal of a 300-kiloton nuclear warhead strapped to a ballistic missile with a range of 8,000 miles. “He’s entitled to a tiny amount of home protection.”
